Range. Home of the famous “Brulsand” or Roaring Sands of the Kalahari. Under the right conditions,
these dunes utter an eerie rumble when disturbed. Witsand Nature Reserve is a scenic reserve
teeming with bird life. More than 150species have been recorded, including the Namaqua sandgrouse, sociable weaver and Africa’s smallest raptor the pygmy falcon. Gemsbok, springbok, red hartebeest, common duiker and steenbok are residents. Afternoon scenic drive and/or hike. The reserve can be explored on mountain bikes too. Sand boarding down the dunes for the young. Bikes and sand boards to rent at reception. Dinner is a traditional “braai”.
